“Helping the Brain Carry On”

The kissing of a forehead,
Show’s sincere compassion,
Without any strings attached.

A forehead is for holding,
When the answer escapes the brain;
With laughter from revelations,
Leaves the skin wrinkled
On the wistful brow,
While the connection to the brain mass,
Finally discovers it some how.

The forehead when held by a big surprise,
Helps the excitement to keep it,
From frying it;
Until the cheering has stopped,
From the happiness felt,
And the brain absorbs and unites it.

A forehead is used like a generous bolt of kindness,
Kissing it from injuries,
Of humility and accidents,
Helping us to face the world,
As reality seeps in,
And slowly releases its burdens.

The forehead holds secrets,
In the back of its skin,
From wisdom sought,
Of many moons back,
Like questions from where we began,
Until the brain is ready to express it again.

The forehead when held in disbelief,
Denies the truth as if it’s to grief,
The brain takes hold,
And the mouth gasps for relief ;
While the sweating head is held by the hands,
Just a little bit tighter,
As if the brain inside will become very still,
Trying to find the answer to a great disaster ;
Only to realize,
Behind the forehead,
Is the wiser.

Giving a kiss on the forehead,
Shows we care,
By kissing it each time a loved one takes sick,
A sense of peace and joy fills the air,
By showing this person is truly loved and adored.


Yes, the forehead is an amazing thing!
It is the fore front of many a dream,
At the receiving end which is emotionally brought,
Without the feeling of a wasted thought;
Farewells are short when love lingers on,
Kissing the forehead helps the brain carry on.
